    Excellent map and design, as usual. Though, I think I prefer your other ways to do the buildings.

    Love the style & line quality. Just one critique: the buildings are so light it makes for some foreground / background confusion. I'd darken them just a little, only until they pop off the white background a little. Know what I mean?

    I like it alot! Love the farm look. I don't think the buildings are too light at all, though I like more individualized shapes for city buildings. However the benefit of making them more abstract like you did is that you can always make zoomed in maps of those neighborhoods look like anything you want, so it works.

    Good job!

    A nice looking map, although I have a few problems with the layout and implied urban form (that is, the outline of the buildings that you have drawn). But then, I am pretty picky about urban form. Good work.

    Indeed I didn't want to go on single buildings on this one, though blocks could probably be detailed in single buildings on the larger version (A3 size).

    I didn't draw buildings but blocks, hence the shapes. Though you're a better expert than me when it's about urban design

    I see what you mean, I'll see it since there's mixed thoughts about it
